The all new Call of Duty: WWII games has been officially announced by Activision with a teaser poster. The franchise has finally ditched all the advanced and high-tech warfare in lieu of its roots similar to the original Call of Duty title.
The very first Call of Duty games was released way back in 2003 and quickly became one of the hottest and most popular First-person shooter game around the world. It garnered positive reviews from both critics and gamers with its simple gameplay and a storyline that retells the World War 2 story in a more interactive way. After that, Activision did release Call of Duty: World at War in 2008 which focused on the same era. However, all the title after World at War focused on next-gen warfare with rocket packs, wall running, and whatnot. This completely diminished the spirit of the game and a lot of hardcore fans of the franchise quit playing or switched to other shooters.

Looks like Activision is finally taking the Call of Duty franchise back to its roots with Call of Duty: WWII. More details about the game will be revealed tonight in the Call of Duty: WWII Worldwide Reveal Live Stream, however, we have been able to find some extra details before the reveal through an Xbox One cover art for the game.
The leaked cover art for the game provides some insights on the experience that will be provided to all the gamers. It shows that players will be able to relive the World War 2 era and fight Nazis in an exhilarating war on D-Day.
Some screenshots were also leaked on the official announcement page by accident. The gameplay screenshots were quickly removed from the announced page, however, fans managed to screenshot the gameplay screens before they were taken down.
Gamers have been asking for a more authentic Call of Duty game that focuses on the “boots on ground” approach of the original titles. With their excellent renderings of the second battle of El Alamein, The advance on Berlin, and the Operation Overlord cinematics. Same type of feedback was also provided for Battlefield – a huge competitor to Call of Duty which encouraged EA (Electronic Arts) to release Battlefield 1 which is set during the events of first World War. Battlefield 1 is a commercial and critical success with it’s excellent reenactment of the first World War events.
This definitely led Activision to rethink their strategy on the Call of Duty franchise and turn back to the tried and tested formula. Call of Duty: WWII has already gathered positive feedback from critics and fans of the game. Looks like Activision finally has a real gem in their hand and the entire livelihood of the franchise depends on how well the company develops this game compared to its competitors. Call of Duty: WWII will be revealed worldwide tonight at 10AM PDT. We can definitely hope to see some extra stunning visuals and gameplay videos during the live reveal stream.
